CNC turning tolerances

We will typically hold all tolerances to within +/- 0.05mm - 0.1mm. The tighter the tolerance, The higher the cost, Our CNC machining is capable of achieving tight tolerances, But if there aren’t critical areas on your part , There is unnecessary to use the tight tolerances, When you send us your 3D product design, our engineer will review your design and give you suggestion of reasonable tolerance, not only reduce the production cost of a part, but also shorten the required manufacturing time, providing you with more cost effective parts.

What is CNC turning?

CNC turning is one of the most widely used machining. It is mainly used for the inner and outer cylindrical surfaces of shaft parts or disc parts, the inner and outer conical surfaces of any taper angle, the complex inner and outer curved surfaces, the cylindrical and conical threads etc., and can be used for grooving, drilling, reaming and reaming, holes etc.

CNC turning provides a cost-efficiency process to make parts that are commonly symmetrical about an axis of revolution. The raw materials to be cut rotates on the machine when a cutter fed into the rotating workpiece. It can be made include variety of taper, fillet and threaded surfaces etc.  We offer full-service CNC turning of a variety of materials. Our experienced staff and advanced machines that ensure all the prototypes will meet your expectations.


CNC Turning FAQ

 

1.What is the CNC turning process?

The CNC turning process involves shaping the material by moving a single-point cutting tool parallel to the axis of rotation while the lathe is stationary and the raw material is turned. Precise measurements are entered into the machine via CAD software.

 


2.What is CNC Milling and Turning?

 

CNC milling

CNC milling is a machining process that produces custom-designed parts or components by gradually removing material from a workpiece using rotating multi-point cutting tools and computer control. These systems typically have three linear degrees of freedom. When the workpieces remain stationary, they can move freely around the X, Y and Z axes. This limited size operation reduces the speed of the operation, making milling more suitable for prototyping and smaller production runs.
 

CNC turning

CNC turning is a manufacturing process that involves holding rods of material in a chuck and rotating them while a tool is fed into the workpiece to remove material until the desired shape is achieved. Since the desired shape is achieved by removing material, it is also known as subtractive machining.
 


3.What are CNC turning parts?

CNC turning is a manufacturing process in which a rod of material is held in a chuck and rotated while a tool is fed into the workpiece to remove material to form the desired shape. A tool-attached turret (shown in the picture) is programmed to move to the raw material bar and remove material to create the programmed result. This is also called "subtractive machining" because it involves material removal. If the center has both adjustment and milling functions, such as the one above, the rotation can be stopped to allow other shapes to be milled.
 


4.What is CNC machining?

General CNC machining usually refers to computer digital control precision machining, CNC machining lathes, CNC machining milling machines, CNC machining boring and milling machines, etc. CNC machining is programmed and controlled according to the programmed program, usually G code, to make the machine tool process. G-code digital language can control the machining process of CNC machine tools. The tool control system uses different position coordinates to control the tool feed, spindle speed, coolant and other functions.
 


5.How accurate is CNC turning?

The machining accuracy of CNC turning has been increased from 10 μm to 5 μm, and the precision machining center has increased from 3 to 5 μm to 1 to 1.5 μm, and the ultra-precision machining accuracy has begun to enter the nanometer level (0.01 μm).
 


6.What are precision turned parts?

Precision turning parts are high-precision hardware turning parts which are processed and operated by lathe machine tools, CNC lathes and other machines. Its precision can reach 0.005mm~0.1mm, and the products include steel, stainless steel, brass, aluminum, copper, bronze, high-precision lathe parts of different shapes and sizes.
